I get a thrill when I spy the first bag of fresh cranberries in the produce section each Fall, I am crazy for cranberries! Cranberry Pumpkin Cake with Caramel Glaze is perfect for those who just love a few.
Cranberry Pumpkin Cake with Caramel Glaze
A “superfood” high in antioxidants, tart and crunchy, cranberries offer more than average health benefits. What I love most about these berries are their attractive bright red color and they can be used in countless ways. I hope to share more cranberry ideas through the holidays, so be watching!
For our traditional Thanksgiving dessert spread, I was inspired by the new “seasonal release”
of Jello’s Pumpkin Spice Pudding and Pie Filling. Cranberry Pumpkin Cake with Caramel Glaze
seemed perfect for those few who aren’t big on pies in our family. Some actually prefer cake and ice cream.
It’s fast and easy to make. Preheat the oven and prepare a 12 cup bundt pan. Be sure to reserve 1/4 cup of the cake mix in a plastic bag. Wash and dry your cranberries and then toss them in the bag with the cake mix and coating them well. This tip helps to keep them from falling to the bottom of the pan.
In a mixing bowl combine the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water and oil and beat together for about 2 minutes. Now gently fold the berries into your batter and pour into your cake pan. Pop it into the the oven for about 40 to 45 minutes…ovens vary, so watch it carefully. I always test it with a toothpick. When the toothpick comes out clean, it’s done. Cool on a wire rack. While the cake is cooling, you can make the caramel glaze.
